star wars theme room



I'm in the process of re-decorating Caleb's room into something I think he will enjoy a little more, star wars! My son adores the character from star wars so will decorate it over time, so far we have: Comforter, sheets, 2 pictures for wall, 2 pictures for bookcase, Lego clock and a light saber wall night light. Still the other side of his room I need to figure out to do with. Here's what I have so far!

extreme snow sledding

 kept telling my self "google the best snow slopes in the area" so that's what I did and found a AWESOME slope, lots of people and kids were there. Puts a whole new perspective on sledding, that's for sure!! Caleb booked it down this 55-60 foot hill!! It was huge, even I was hooting and hollering all the way down, Caleb wanted to be by himself most times and he did flip out once and hit his head [next time hes wearing a helmet]. I got some serious exercising going up and down this crazy hill, was sweating by the time we left, it was awesome and cant wait till the next snow fall. Caleb was the youngest kiddo going down these slopes, most were 8-15 years old!!

A tree full of gifts..

I feel so blessed for my family and I, my mothers package and my brothers package both arrived on the same day! Filled the tree up quite nice wouldnt you say?

***

"A Christmas Tree"
One little star at the top of the tree
Two little presents underneath for me
Three silver ropes twisted around the tree
Four colored lights shining prettily
Five shining lights flowing silvery
Oh, what a sight for us to see!

Lights at Botanical Garden


We went last night to the botanical garden for a light show, so beautiful and magical. It was so cold outside, so we got some cups of hot coa-coa and did the trick of warmth! They had tons of lights, caroling and other activities. Special time of year, I really don't want to see it go so fast!!

Nicks Garden Center

We went to Nicks Garden Center, originally to see Santa but there was a 1 mile long wait so we went around and looked at everything else. LOVE this place, so magical and special. Tiny details that make this place a winter wonderland. I love it! I left with a jar of handmade picante sauce, peach butter and a wooden porcupine ornament [I took a pic of him]

elf on the shelf



                                                                      elf on the shelf
I had heard of this tradition on a mommies board and decided to give it a go. Caleb loves the idea and thinks its so funny to see him move around, he named our elf Albie. The consept is to move this little elf around in a new spot every day and he 'watches' your behavior and then reports it to santa while the child sleeps. The child cant touch the elf, if he does the elfl ooses its magic, the elf cant talk because its a 'rule' santa gave the elf. However the elf likes to listen to the child talk. Different but totally fun, Caleb squeals with delight every morning in search of him, its funny to watch his reactions.
